Khabib argues why Aldo isn’t ‘peaking again’: Even McGregor can look like a ‘lion’ vs weak opponents

You can say that Jose Aldo was back to his old self against Pedro Munhoz at UFC 265. He employed a fluid combination of attacks to the head and body, but perhaps most notably, the patented leg kicks were back.

It was definitely a delight for fans to see glimpses of “vintage” Aldo back in action. Retired undefeated ex-champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, however, was far from impressed.

“How is he showing (he is peaking again)? He got beat up when he fought… Who’d he fight? He fought Petr (Yan) right?” Khabib said during the recent Gorilla Fighting Championship press conference (translation via RT Sport).
